The council is looking for volunteers to help facilitate an exciting art exhibition due to be held in the Blake Gallery in February.

Gravesham’s Your Paintings exhibition brings together a collection of art works belonging to the borough which have been in storage or mounted in non public areas.

The exhibition has been created in support of a project run by the Public Catalogue Foundation (PCF) the BBC and a range of partners to catalogue on-line all of the nation’s oil paintings. The UK holds in its galleries and civic buildings over 200,000 oil paintings spanning 600 years of art history, it has taken 10 years to complete this project

We are seeking volunteers to look after this exciting exhibition during shifts from Wednesday 13 – Sunday 17 February 2013. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 years and live close to or within the Borough of Gravesham.
